Synopsis:

The author of the Twilight series of # 1 bestsellers delivers her brilliant first novel for adults: a gripping story of love and betrayal in a future with the fate of humanity at stake.

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

Oh, I can't wait, I can't wait! It sounds really good. May seems like such a long time away, though. I'll already be living in Houston five months by then! That seems unreal.

It does sound good. I can't wait to read it but I'm not sure how it could end well. I hate that she just loves to pull your heart strings. At least they have bookstores in Houston :)

I might actually have to check this one out. Thanks for the heads up!

Amen to that! They don't have any here, that's for sure. They actually know what a Barnes & Noble is over there.

Sounds a bit bizarre....and definitely the kind of book I'll have to check out. *grin*

Robert, I'll have to read it just because it is Meyer :)

Kimberly, I think it should be good though. Her other books have such a good feel about them.
